District by district - Georgia - 08 Rep. Marshall down by 13 points
The Hill ^ | 10/27/2010 | The Hill Staff

Rep. Jim Marshall (D-Ga.) is down 13 points, 37 percent to 50, against Republican Austin Scott, with 10 percent of likely voters undecided, according to The Hill 2010 Midterm Election Poll.

Ironically, voters give the four-term lawmaker high marks: Forty-five percent rated him favorably, compared to the 40 percent who rated him unfavorably. Scott had higher ratings, however, with 50 percent giving him favorable marks compared to 19 percent who didn’t.

Marshall is a conservative Blue Dog who’s indicated he won’t vote for Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) for Speaker next Congress. In an ad for Marshall, an announcer notes: “Jim Marshall doesn’t support Nancy Pelosi. He voted the same as Republican leaders 65 percent of the time.”

Incumbency could be a problem for Marshall, as 41 percent of those polled said his time in Washington is a reason to vote against him.

Exactly. Democrats these days are equivalent to socialists. They would shred the Constitution if they could.

Vote them all out. Then begin purging the Republican Party.

There is no such thing as a conservative Democrat. If they were conservative, they’d be in the GOP (and even there they’d be in the minority).
